THE Bachelorette star Clare Crawley has liked a host of cryptic Twitter messages suggesting she was "forced off" the series - which was "heavily edited" against her.
The Sacramento native, who has found love with former footballer Dale Moss on the matchmaking show, has been on a social media spree in an attempt to tacitly explain her upcoming absence.
It was previously reported that producers were left “shocked” after Clare allegedly quit the show two weeks into production.
Clare would not leave her room after she had fallen for Dale while filming the 16th season, according to US Weekly.
It has also been rumored that Clare and Dale are engaged but neither have publicly addressed their status.
While ABC bosses have not confirmed the storyline Clare, 39, has now taken to her Twitter account to give a 'like' to fans who might be on the right track with their suspicions.
The hairstylist liked one message which read: "I think they [producers] were trying to force her out on some real. It was reported that she quit 12 days after filming and she locked herself in her room and wouldn’t come out, which was hard to believe considering how bad she wanted it."
A second message, also given the thumbs up by Clare, read: "Don’t you see with how the last two episodes have been produced, there’s no drama and the drama that they’ve shown has been dramatized and fixated to make Clare look a certain type of way."
A third message, also liked by Clare, read: "No I agree with you. Her season is so off, the sound bites and the pictures don’t even go together, everything is so heavily edited."
The original author of the Tweet then replied: "The only thing that I want to be true is that she’s with Dale. And even if she’s not I just hope she’s content and happy."
US Weekly appeared to confirm in August how Tayshia Adams was brought in to replace Clare, who was named as The Bachelorette in March.
Reality Steve confirmed earlier this year that the 29-year-old was seen at the La Quinta Resort in Palm Desert - where part of this season of The Bachelorette was filmed.
The blogger told CheatSheet: "There’s no reason for Tayshia to be in La Quinta unless she’s being asked to film something.
"Which means that she would be the Bachelorette. So if you ask me if Tayshia is going to be the Bachelorette from this point forward, my answer would be yes.”

Prior to finding romance on the show, which was delayed in transmission due to the coronavirus pandemic, it had been a tough season for Clare, who was accused of lying about not going to her high school prom.
She claimed she had not been invited to the iconic end of school dance as she was "invisible" to her fellow pupils.
Yet hours later, a viewer shared a photo of Clare at prom with her now husband in 1999 and accused her of fabricating her story.
The user wrote: “My husband took @clarecrawley to senior prom, @clarecrawley you went to prom. #bachelorette #clarecrawley #senior ball #1999 #hothusband."
